Youth Studio: Monotype Madness!
Tuesday, June 13 from 12-2pm, ages 8-12
Create colorful one-of-a-kind, painterly prints incorporating textures from botanical elements and found objects.
In this class, we will explore the possibilities of monotype printmaking. Students will apply multiple layers of ink to printing plates with paintbrushes and rollers to create their images. We will also incorporate textures using pieces of fabric, flowers, leaves, bubble wrap and more to emboss the paper. Students will take home 3 to 5 archival prints suitable for framing.
- All materials will be provided: BFK Rives printmaking paper, monotype plates, Akua water-based inks, and tools.
Students will be using permanent water-based inks, so please wear clothes that can get dirty!
We will be using an etching press. Students must be capable of following directions to avoid harming themselves, other students, or equipment.
